Wartime requires decisive actions from the management of enterprises, such as: acceleration of managerial decision-making, flexibility of management style, improvement of communication processes, ensuring the safety of employees and their mental health, maintaining their productivity, etc. All this requires the development of new, adaptation of existing personnel management tools under force majeure conditions of operation.

The essence of effective management is that employees are considered as an asset and a special resource of the organization. With the change of the internal and external environment of the organization, personnel management tools will also change.

Through the prism of strategic, anti-crisis management, there is an urgent need to change the functional model of personnel management at enterprises, which should be based on their own experience of working with their employees, limited financial resources and force majeure conditions of operation. With this in mind, the use of a functional approach to personnel management was suggested. The essence of the function in personnel management from the point of view of a set of works of a certain type, performed to solve various tasks and achieve the goal of management, makes it possible to distinguish different functions depending on the type and purpose of work, namely planning, organizing, motivating, controlling and regulating the activities of personnel. Differentiation of functions allows you to single out separate tasks and types of management activities and regulate rational rules and procedures for their implementation.

The practical significance of the article is that, based on the analysis of literary sources on the basic principles of personnel management and generalizations of statistical studies on trends in this field of activity under martial law, a description of the functions of planning, organizing, motivating, controlling and regulating the activities of employees is given. In the conditions of martial law, the rationality of personnel management is replaced by the preservation/conservation of personnel. Prospects for further research will be a more thorough, detailed analysis of the functions of planning, organizing, motivating, controlling, and regulating the activities of employees under martial law.
